I am using Real Player on an old Palm Tungsten T5 with SD 2GB cards as my Mp3 player; a little bulky but it has been working fine. It is an old version, 1.6.1. I just changed up my playlists and wanted to synch them to the SD card. I formatted the SD Card & all of a sudden the MP3 player won't recognize the songs on the SD card and I am getting frustrated. I have tried synching the playlists, moving songs manually with explorer, and using heirarchal folders. Real Player keeps coming back with "No playable songs found. Insert memory card with playable songs." I am on disabilty and really can't afford a new player...any suggestions?

I ran into a similar problem once, a very long time ago, with a player that used Smartmedia cards. In my case, I had formatted the card with the wrong file system. In my case the card needed to be formatted as an FAT file system, and I had formatted it to (I think) FAT32.

Do you have any documentation on which file system you need to use songs?

Thanks for the reply. I have formatted it to the correct system and thought I had it working, but now there is another problem: I have 2 GB SD card, but I can only get 1 GB on the card; it always stops accepting data at 1 GB. Wow this is fun!

How old is it? And have you ever gotten more than 1 GB to work? That may be a design limit.

It is about 5 years old, but the capacity is 2GB. I had that capability before I formated the card.

Hmmm ... In that case, I'm stumped.

The only other thing I'd try -- and there's no guaranty -- is to use a card reader to connect the formatted card directly to the computer, verify that you've got 2 GB (just in case the card is faulty), and load the card directly from the computer. Then put the card back in the player and see if you've got your songs.

Good luck!
